What do you think of John Terry? Is he a bit of a d**k or just misunderstood?
He's definitely a working-class pikey type, and he struggles to be sensible som times. He probably had a tough upbringing though, it seems that way anyway, so it's not always easy for him. He's been a good leader for Chelsea but he's getting past it and there's probably only one season left in him now.


Are you a real Chelsea fan then?
I used to go when I was 12 years old, back when I had a skinhead. But I also used to go to QPR games sometimes because they played down the road from my school and some of my friends followed them. Then the Sex Pistols started and I lost all interest in football for a long time. But when I moved to the US and got clean and sober I really got back into it and I'm always getting up at 7am to watch the games. So I was a fan when they were sh*t and not just when Abramovich came. I always go to games when I'm back over.


What's the best Chelsea match you've seen?
Well, it has to be the Champions League final, doesn't it? That or the semi-final against Barcelona. Two unbelievable games. People were saying it was meant to be and all that sh*t, but I just don't know how it happened. I didn't think it would happen at all after the way the other final ended (v Manchester United in 2008).


What do you think of the current squad?
I don't know how we'll do without Drogba. I'm a big fan of his. I have to say, it was strange how he gave away those penalties in the Champions League and they were both missed. I'm not sure if Torres can replace him. I don't know if Torres is moody or something but he never looks to take players on anymore. He always lays it off. Every time. Mikel is the weakest link though. We've never replaced Makelele. Essien was alright for a bit but Mikel is just not up to the level we need. That bothers me more than any other problems we have.


Do grown men like you have a favourite player?
I like Frank Lampard. He's a hard worker, scores a lot of goals and never misses a game. He doesn't moan, he just gets on with it.


Are you a fan of Roberto Di Matteo?
I'm not sure if he's the right man for the job. Obviously he did well last season, but when we're under pressure he doesn't make any changes. He never seems to use his subs. But he's a million times better than that other mug at Spurs. I don't get why you'd appoint a manager after he was sh*t for half a year somewhere else. No-one seemed to like him either.


Who do you think had the wildest lifestyle - Sex Pistols or Adrian Mutu at Chelsea?
Do you think Mutu's the only one doing blow and shagging every night? Loads of them will be at it with the money they get. Sid Vicious was the wildest though.


Tell us a bit about the box set.
It's like the iPhone 5 - you don't really need it but you've got to have it. All bullsh*t aside, the re-mastered version actually sounds a lot better. There's a lot more bite to it. It's all been done very well - the box set is nice inside and it's a real collector's item. If you're a fan, you'll definitely like it.

Sex Pistols have announced details of a 35th Anniversary 'Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols' limited edition super deluxe box set to be released September 24th through Universal Music UK. Visit www.sexpistolsofficial.com and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/sexpistolsofficial

m no Sam Fan and this article sums him up beautifully. I always like to imagine that when he watches anything on TV and hears clapping, he stands up and aknowledges the applause, thinking its for him!

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
